Naturally Aspirated 2.0 Build (Pics)

So where to start... I have not been on any of the forums in quite some time...

I have always wanted to build a motor for my 2007 focus that I have owned since new. I am a drag racing kind of guy, got my car stock to go 15.990 @ 84.xx, well as time went on parts were added to the car over the years until it became a street driven "race car". Mods included consist of... "custom" short ram intake with velocity stack, cfm 67mm tb, cosworth intake manifold, f2 4-1 header and 2.5" exhaust, cfm underdrive pulleys, power steering delete, tuned by tom with exedy stage 2 clutch kit.

Here is a pic of the car on my old slicks 23x8.5 / 24x3.5 sitting in the staging lanes




Ended up going to Import Face Off and this happened... Time slip in at the end of the video

http://youtu.be/E00b62gEhS4

Melted 3 spark plugs, popped some new ones in the car and drove home, did a compression test and saw what i feared, all three cylinders that had melted had low compression and have been driving the car like that for over a year now. But that was when I figured now is the time to build a motor so over the last year or so I have been gathering parts here and there as I tried to determine how i wanted to do it. So here it is and it is finally time...

A friend of mine found me a complete and running 2.0 Dtec in a wrecked focus at a junkyard for $200 i tore the engine down and it all started from there, first thing was getting the cylinder head taken care of...

Head consists of .025" milled, 5 angle valve job, 36mm / 31mm Supertech valves and valve springs, ported and Crane "stage 3" cams Intake being .435" and 236 @ .050" and Exhaust at .410" and 226 @ .050"













Now on to the lower half...

All new oem timing components, thermostat (170 degree from the euro dtecs), oem headgasket, all arp hardware, gpwerks "unlabled" k1 rods, supertech 88mm 12.6:1 pistons ect...











I might have missed out a few things, but that pretty much sums it up. The short block is at the machine shop currently to be hot tanked, bored, balanced, ect... The only parts that I can think of that I am lacking is, oil pump, oil pump chain, oil pump chain guide and couple seals / gaskets...

Tell me what you think

Felix, 2.0 cuz it gets better gas mileage. Duh. Jk.

Seeing the 2.0l are more common, it's nice to see what can be done with them.

OP, I'll be following this thread for sure.

Thanks guys, I went with the 2.0 because everyone wants to build a 2.3 (I understand why) I wanted to be different and have not seen a built NA 2.0 and I'm confident that I will make 205+ with my restrictive super quiet exhaust.

I would assume you are joking about the exhaust. But just incase you aren't, what are you going to use for the exhaust setup?

Well I'm not exactly kidding, It might not be "restrictive" but I believe my exhaust will end up being a weak link. I made a new exhaust for my car. Giant magnaflow resonator in the front , I used the borla midsection then have a turbo muffler out the back. Driving away you hear more intake noise then exhaust.

As of right now I have no plans to alter the exhaust, I've come to like how quiet it is.
